A younger hero opposite an older heroine seems to be the latest casting fad in Bollywood!
While we have seen such chemistry in hit films like KHILADIYON KA KHILADI in 1996, where Akshay Kumar and Rekha ignited hormones with their saucy scenes, or even tracing back to 1966, with PHOOL AUR PATTHAR, where Dharmendra and Meena Kumari set the screen on fire, this trend seems to be knocking on the doors of Bollywood yet again.
While those films may have been lauded at the box office then, today, the scenario seems to have taken a U-Turn of some sort, with many such films booming despite having powerful actors and sometimes even, big banners. The reasons maybe many, but the older heroine-younger hero chemistry surely needed some more tadka to it! Here's taking a closer look at some of these films which failed to set hearts on fire and the box office pulse racing.

While the on screen MOHABBAT between a younger Akshaye Khanna and older Madhuri Dixit could have made for a powerful love story, the film failed to live up to expectations.
